The Google Pixel 2 is the smaller and cheaper smartphone option released in 2017 from the folks at Mountain View, California. However, it’s still a pretty pricey handset and you will likely need to get a case to protect your investment. Thankfully, there’s already a number of great Google Pixel 2 cases that will do the trick.

This list includes some of Google’s own products, along with a number of third-party cases. They range from clear shells to rugged ones that are designed to take a lot of abuse.

All of the cases listed support the Pixel 2’s Active Edge feature, which lets you squeeze the case to activate Google Assistant or silence any incoming phone calls. If you want to check out the latest version of the phone, you can check out the Google Pixel 3.

Otterbox Google Pixel 2 Case

 

Otterbox has released one of its Symmetry cases for the Google Pixel 2 phone. It has a  dual-layer design, with a flexible TPU inner shell and a harder PC outer layer. It should be enough to keep the phone safe from falls and accidents from a few feet off the ground. The raised beveled edge on the phone’s front should also keep its touchscreen safer from scratches.

The Otterbox Symmetry case comes in three rather interesting colors and designs. One is the Summer Melon model, with its purple inner shell and a pink-like outer skin. It sells for $19.92 on Amazon. It also comes in a Mermaid Tail design, with a clear inner shell, and an outer layer with a blue design that resembles a mermaid’s tail. It’s on sale for $14.99. Finally, there’s the Hello Ombre design, again with a clear inner layer and a frosted design on top, for the price of $11.97.


Caseology Parallax Google Pixel 2 Case

Caseology’s case for the Pixel 2 also has a dual-layer design and is made from TPU and PC. It offers military-grade protection (MIL-STD-810g 516.6), which means it was drop tested 26 times from a height of four feet (1.2 meters). Due to its high-level of protection, the case adds a bit more bulk to your device than some of the others listed in this post.

The product is a stunner thanks to its textured back panel with a 3D geometric design that also provides more grip. It features a raised lip that protects the display when the device is placed face down. The case will set you back $14.99 and comes in four stylish colors: Burgundy, Charcoal Gray, Navy Blue, and Ocean Gray.


Swoders Google Pixel 2 Case

What makes this case special is the eye-catching pattern on the back side. There are five designs to choose from, all of which retails for around $8.

The case sports a rubberized polycarbonate back panel and a TPU bumper for added protection. It very thin, so it won’t add a lot of bulk to your device and is compatible with the innovative Active Edge feature.

Moment Google Pixel 2 Case

 

This is not only a great Google Pixel 2 case from Moment, but it can also actually help improve any photos you take with the smartphone. The case comes in either a textured black or real walnut wood versions, and both should allow you to hold onto the phone in one hand for better camera shots. In addition, you can connect a wrist strap (sold separately) to the bottom of the case, so you get an extra amount of protection against falls and spills.

The big thing about the Moment case is that it supports optional camera lenses that attach to where the phone’s camera sits. You can get a much bigger wide angle lens, a telephoto lens and much more. Again, this case and the extra Moment lenses let you create some great images. The Moment Google Pixel 2 case is available for $39.99; you will have to pay extra for the wrist strap and the lenses.


Google Pixel 2 Fabric Case

Google Pixel 2 cases

Google has a number of official cases for the Pixel 2, including this one, covered in a fabric material with a polyester and knit exterior and a soft polycarbonate core. The case also comes with cutouts for the Pixel 2’s camera and its rear fingerprint scanner along with its charging port. There’s also a silicone G logo on the back just in case you want to let people know this is a Google-made phone. 

These Google Pixel 2 cases comes in carbon, cement, midnight, and coral colors and can be purchased directly from the company for $40.


Google Pixel 2 Earth Live Case

If you want a more eye-popping case for the Pixel 2, Google has its Earth Live cases to make your phone stand out. There are two cases with matte finish, sporting images from Google Earth. One features a rock graphic and the other a river. If you buy one of these polycarbonate cases, you also get access to a companion app that updates your wallpaper with a new Google Earth location image.

Of course, the cases also come with cutouts for the phone’s camera, fingerprint scanner, and charging port, but they lack the “G” logo. These Google Pixel 2 cases are a bit more expensive than the fabric ones. You can snag them from the Google Store for $50 right now.

Looking for a thin Pixel 2 case? There is no thinner case than the MNML case at just 0.35 mm. It’s so thin that it will look and feel like you have no case at all. It doesn’t offer much drop protection, but it will protect you from the day-to-day scratches that can accumulate.

The case comes in 5 different colors, including clear black, clear white, matte black, really blue, and red, and it’s on sale for $14.99.


Google Pixel 2 Customizable Live Case

If you want even more image choices for your Google Pixel 2 case, you might want to consider getting one of the company’s customization live cases for the phone. You can select from one of many, many designs from well-known artists to put in the back of the case, or you can use Google Maps to create a location-based design of your choosing. Finally, Google allows you to upload your own personal photos to use as images for cases (as long as they don’t violate copyright laws).

The customization live cases are created in the Google Store web site, and you can choose a slim design for $40 or one with dual-layer protection for $50. These Google Pixel 2 cases are a must if you want to make your phone look truly unique.


Spigen Tough Armor Google Pixel 2 Case

The folks at Spigen are well known for their phone cases, and the company’s Tough Armor lineup now includes one for the Google Pixel 2. As with the other Spigen Tough Armor cases, this one combines a hard outer polycarbonate shell with a more flexible inner TPU case. The shell is designed to protect the Pixel 2 from harm against falls and even comes with a built-in kickstand just in case you want to watch a Netflix movie without holding the phone.

Amazon is currently selling the Spigen case for $16.99. If you want an exceptionally durable product, this should be on your Google Pixel 2 cases list.


Ringke FUSION Crystal Clear Google Pixel 2 Case

While having good protection for your Pixel 2 phone is important, some people may still want to show off their new purchase. The Ringke FUSION case offers a way to do just that, but still offers protection against falls. It has a dual-layer design with a polycarbonate shell and an inner TPU lining. Yet the clear coating on the back of the case still supports MIL-STD 810G ratings, which means you can drop the Pixel 2 several feet and have it still work with this case.

The bumper on the Ringke case comes in clear, rose gold, and black, in case you want the outer edge to have a different look. You can get this case right now from Amazon for $9.99 or $10.99 depending on the color.


Spigen Thin Google Pixel 2 Case

 The last product on our Google Pixel 2 cases list is yet another product from Spigen. Unlike the rugged case from the company, this is a single layer polycarbonate case but still offers a lot of protection against spills and drops, even though it has a slimmer design. There’s no kickstand here, but if you don’t think you will need it, this case may be for you. It’s available now from Amazon for $11.99.

That’s our list of the best Google Pixel 2 cases that you can buy right now. If more cases are released that impress us, we will update this post accordingly. Meanwhile, which cases would you like to add to this list? Let us know your opinions in the comments!
